Rise of the Dark Realms Discussion

griffstick on "My" Top 10 mono black ...

1 day ago

Ok so Josh and Jimmy from the command zone made an episode of top 10 black and top 10 green very recently. Here's the link to the episode, click here. I want to make a similar list with a twist, using only cards with cmc 6 or greater to make this list. (Excluding cards with X in it's cost, "X" doesn't count here). If this is successful I will do every mono color for cards 6 cmc or greater. Btw I'm not bashing the command zone at all I'm a huge fan. (This list will be budget as well) no cards over 20$ US dollars... maybe

So here goes "my" top 10 mono black edh cards with total cmc 6 or greater. With 1 being the best.

All the rest after the are honorable mentions

Every card mentioned above in the top ten are based off my gameplay exp in my kitchen table metta.

I want everyone's feed back on the order, and what cards you think should make the list, and cards I missed.

Badass. I love stealing people's stuff.

How about Rise of the Dark Realms (I know it's a little expensive)? Play that and your opponent will most often scoop! Crux of Fate is a good board wipe as well.

Awesome deck!

Oh, and Rise of the Dark Realms. That would be a hilarious card to add.

I'll recommend Sphinx's Tutelage, Bloodchief Ascension, Crypt Incursion, Bojuka Bog, and Lazav, Dimir Mastermind.

Sphinx's Tutelage gives you a passive mill engine that's fueled by card draw, giving each draw much more value. This will devour mono-colored decks if played early.

Bloodchief Ascension combos with your Mindcrank. Combined with Mindcrank, you have infinite mill and life gain whenever one card enters an opponent's graveyard. Generally useful anyway because any mill spell can become a win.

Crypt Incursion and Bojuka Bog give you a way to deal with pesky graveyards. (Mill will always have opponents with massive graveyards.) Crypt Incursion is instant speed, wipes all creatures, and gives you some life to boot. Make Sheoldred, Whispering One half as scary.

Lazav, Dimir Mastermind gives you some value off of mill. If one of your opponents' creatures goes into the graveyard (mill, discard, or removal), you get a strictly-better version of that creature. Other cards to consider in using your opponents' graveyards is Beacon of Unrest and Rise of the Dark Realms.

I made a mill deck a while back --> Lazav, Dimir Mastermind. This might have some other useful things.

Couple of suggestions/upgrades to look for:

-Greater Good vice Fecundity While the latter gets down faster the idea of allowing our opponents draw cards off of their blockers is just gross to me. There is a political appeal to Fecundity but I would trash it.

-Woodfall Primus and Puppeteer Clique are valuable because of persist and you could also consider Cauldron of Souls as well as you want to "Storm" off. Puppeteer Clique is just gorgeous because it can let you go infinite and kill your opponents off with their own creatures and you can get the combo off of Protean Hulk grabbing the clique and a one-mana sac dork. Rendclaw Trow can go pound sand.

-Rise of the Dark Realms isn't recursion; it's a finisher and if you want to storm/combo off to win, its an unnecessary card for the deck. I recommend more tutors even something like Diabolic Tutor as you could end up winning. If you want a good finisher card, I'd go with Rite of Consumption or Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord

Sicohippy on GhoulCaller Gisa (First EDH Deck)

Welcome to EDH, my personal favourite format, and my personal favourite commander, Ghoulcaller Gisa!

I absolutely love this general because you can make whatever you want from her, I see all kinds of different takes on the deck.

If you need sacrificial fodder, definitely add Phyrexian Dreadnought, Phyrexian Soulgorger, and Waning Wurm

Kokusho, the Evening Star is great to sacrifice, just go ahead and heal yourself based on other's life totals

to buff your zombies, I see you have added Coat of Arms, don't ever remove this, its probably your strongest synergy.Zombie Master, Corpse Harvester, Unbreathing Horde are all good to continue this growth effect.

Stoneforge Masterwork, Fallen Ideal to double your zombies

Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Increasing Ambition, Beseech the Queen, Demonic Collusion are all good options for tutors, I think you ought to include atleast 2 more, maybe 3 depending on how combo-y/ synergistic you want to make this deck.

Attrition, Grave Pact, Smokestack, Magus of the Abyss, Pox and other stax cards of the like to tax your opponents for creatures while you can easily upkeep the cost.

Rise of the Dark Realms is sometimes a win con, other reanimation effects include Sheoldred, Whispering One, Dutiful Return, Dread Return, Death Denied and ESPECIALLY Hell's Caretaker, love this guy...

I could go all day with suggestions, shes really a canvas in terms of generals, you can do just about anything you want to do that is under the spectrum of black, by all means, completely ignore every suggestion I have made, this is a good deck as it stands for multiplayer already.

I hope this helps as a resource though in case you want to take it one direction or the other.


remember that Ghoulcaller Gisa's ability doesn't have to be used on your turn, so its important to only use it when you absolutely have to, unless your zombies have haste, that is... but remember that the zombies usually don't have haste and they need to wait a turn to be used, so you can wait until the end of an opponents turn, or the beginning of another's or even respond to effects on the stack with her ability.

I hope this helps! Cheers!
